Programme Note:
Concerto for bassoon, double wind orchestras and two percussions. A serial work in 12 tones. The bassoon is the main narrator of the legend and the orchestra describes the scene. Very tense music, non-stop work in a single movement. It could be choreographed as a modern ballet. Tension is heightened by working with double instrumentation. Please read the story first – it helps you to appreciate the music better.
